and welcome to "early start," everyone, i'm john berman. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. tuesday, december 11th, 5:00 a.m. in the east. we begin this morning in the south where more storms are expected today. this after residents are left cleaning up from the aftermath of yesterday's storms. the rain was so intense. take a look at what happened to the home of one man, this is birmingham, alabama as he was being interviewed by a local tv reporter. >> we had dogs. he was in the cage. oh, my god. oh, my god. oh, my god. you all okay? you all okay? you all all right? >> look at that, the roof of clint thornton's home collapsing due to the soaking rain. he believes a tornado touched down in his neighborhood. let's check in with alexand exe ste steele. >> there were 12 reported tornadoes yesterday, 2 have been con dining roomed by the survey teams. more survey teams will go out today and deem it be a tornado or not. this is what we saw yesterday. we have a cool weather season for tornadoes and it's in what we call dixie alley. louisiana, mississippi, alabama, that's where we saw them. even into flori
the atmosphere around these talks is positive between the president and speaker john boehner, when it gets to the underlying details, progress is maddeningly slow. president obama telephoned senate majority leader harry reid monday while rob nabors huddled for a second day in a row aide to speaker john boehner. no discernible progress toward breaking the fiscal cliff stalemate. mr. obama left that drama behind and told supporters in suburban detroit the fiscal cliff is serious business. >> if congress doesn't act soon, meaning in the next few weeks, starting on january 1st, everybody's going to see their income taxes go up. >> reporter: boehner and house republicans want to preserve all the bush era tax rates due to expire at year's end, shielding everyone from a tax increase. mr. obama wants to raise them for households earning more than $250,000 a year. he has so far resisted gop demands for spending cuts to health care or education. >> i'm not going to have a situation where the wealthiest among us, including folks like me, get to keep all our tax breaks and then we're asking students t
speaker john boehner know they have to reach agreement this week if there's to be a deal, which is why they met behind closed doors on sunday. spokesmen for both men say that lines of communication remain open with the president reiterating today that he's up for a big deal. >> i have said i will work with republicans on a plan for economic growth, job creation, and reducing our deficits. i'm willing to compromise a little bit. but if we're serious about reducing our deficit, we've also got to be serious about investing in the thiges that help us grow and make the middle class strong. >> as for speaker boehner, he continued his political posturing today with a statement. quote, the republican offer made last week remains the republican offer, and we continue to wait for the president to identify the spending cuts he's willing to make as part of the balanced approach he promised the american people. that said, an increasingly limber group of republicans are showing flekx 5eb89 on higher rates for top earners arguing raising rates on the rich will give them greater leverage on spending c
global issues are discussed. tonight i'm sitting down with three legendary citizens, john mccain senior senator from arizona, presidential candidate and ranking member on the armed services committee, joe lieberman, senior senator from connecticut and was on the ticket with al gore, and lindsey graham, the senior senator from south carolina, a member of the armed services appropriations and budget committees. welcome the you three. the three amigos. as dubbed by general petraeus. >> you forgot to mention he ran for president also and lost and he'll run and lose some day. >> this is -- john, much too often as we travel has described us as the losers caucus. once we were in pakistan and the ambassador -- this was 2002, the ambassador was good enough to give a dinner in our honor. mccain and i led the delegation of eight other senators. he got up to make his toast. i'm here, mccain, he lost for president, i lost for vice president, john says, you have here before you, the american government in exile. >> by the time this interview is over, you will know why they both lost. >> what is known
john barrasso, republican from wyoming. chairman of the republican policy committee and sifrs on the foreign relations committee. you received a letter from john kerry, the committee chairman, saying that hillary clinton, the secretary of state is expected to testify before the end of the term. how critical is her testimony, senator? >> well i think it is very important to have hearings with hillary and they need to be in my opinion open and on the record. there are so many questions to be asked of this administration, of hillary clinton as secretary of state but also of the president about what happened before 9/11. it has been, tomorrow will be three months since the attacks on 9/11 and there are more questions now, jon, than there even were before. jon: senator kerry indicated that the accountability review board that ambassador thomas pickering is heading is about to issue its report. do you need to wait for that report to come out before getting the secretary of state's testimony? >> well i want to read the report and i want to ask a numb he about -- number of questions t
.c., no news at all. silence about the fiscal cliff. the president and the house speaker john boehner holding closed door meetings to work out a deal or try to. 21 days and counting away from tax hikes and spending cuts going into affect. and congress breaks for christmas on friday. here is where things stand. the president hitting the road to sell his tax plan to -- at a truck plant to workers in michigan. and there are fiscal cliff talks and on capitol hill for a single day, all was quiet. that's always bad news if you are a political reporter, shannon travis live in washington, d.c.. there are some people who say well, let's read into the silence, because that's all we're getting and it's good news. do you feel that way? >> could be potentially good news. there is this notion of not negotiating through the media. the stakes are high, puts pressure on both sides. so on? that sense, as much as we would love to know what's going on in these discussions, it might be good to take some of the pressure off. i will read a statement from house speaker john boehner's press secretary. discussions wit
for a while working with john pope, and that worked out pretty well, too. when they captured the island in april 1862. part of this sequence of union successes in the spring of 1862 which then did come to an end, so if there is informal cooperation between the two of them it works pretty well. but as they see themselves as rivals, it's not going to work. >> look at halleck and grant in 1862. halleck is worrying about grant. >> give us a sense of the state of, the evolving state in terms of shifting and as 1861 most 1862 and sort of changes, radically in terms of enlistme enlistment. >> start with me? yeah, one of the things about the civil war, and i think it's particularly to the civil war navies, it's a tonic pivot point in history. things have been changing for some time. the telegraph comes in in the 1840s but railroads already expanding across the continent. but the application of these large-scale want to the workers, were terribly new, in land were probably arguably, the most immediate impact was the rifle, shoulder musket which dramatically extended the range of soldiers could f
of house speaker john boehner. 39% view jeb bush in a favorable light. 36% of republicans haven't even heard of marco rubio. carrie, there's no definitive answer in all of this as to who republicans see emerging as a true leader moving forward. >> sure. that's the challenge that republicans face right now after mitt romney, who doesn't hold a public office where he can continue to sort of have this platform or this voice. so that leaves a void right now. as you said, speaker -- i mean, congressman ryan is, you know, below 50%. a lot of these more popular figures as we would view them inside washington, marco rubio, others, you know, they still remain largely unknown outside the beltway. and jeb bush, another person who's been pointed out as a leading contender in 2016 is still being weighed down by the bush name. you can see maybe that's the reason why -- among many reasons, probably, he did not jump into the race this year. he has a couple of years, obviously, to sort of push up his, you know, favorability rating. we will probably see him maybe taking a more prominent role in the next
to deny victory to a democratic presidential candidate, john kerry, is now this country's majority opinion. well, something here has stirred but what is it in what has shifted the grunt tw-thirds against smement marriage to more than 50% for it in compassion, common sense, idea fatigue? the inability of opponents to specify a single argument against it or is it the sheer number of declarations to family, friends, co-workers and public by so many people that they are gay? is this why owe so many americans have changed their mind on marriage equality? in any case tonight a major break through in the conservative ranks. our guest clark cooper, president of the log cabin republicans, and joan walsh of salon.com. let's take a look at something that george will said this weekend and the question is has the opposition of gay marriage softened even along conservative. take a look at what mr. will said this weekend. let's watch it. >> this decision by the supreme court came 31 days after an election day in which three states for the first time endorsed same-sex marriage at the ballot box. never hap
and ron reagan and republican strategist john. we watch this, we have seen what the president has given in his basic last stand against what's taking place right now. the president is going out there saying this is not about economics. this is more about politics. >> well, i think it's about both, to be honest. if you look at the labor chair of the spy in this country, it has been shrinking for decades. and, you know, in some ways to the extent that unions are viewed as contentious, problematic organizations, we've got the unions we deserve. if when you work with them in other countries like germany, you get more cooperative unions. so i do think that the destruction of unions in this country has been one of the main reasons that the labor share of the pie has been shrinking. that's problematic to me. >> john, from the right, can you explain why it looks like to the casual observer here that organized labor is getting kneecaped in michigan? >> i think the problem is neither side understands himself. big business and small business is facing barrier after barrier. losing manufacturing jo
about this issue." they did not respond to our request for comment, john cornyn, who oversaw the loss in two seats, has received a promotion to be mitch mcconnell's number two. what better way to deal with stinging loss than to double down on the very same strategy. jen, i have to go to you first on this. >> so much to say. >> there is a lot to say. i know it's politics bean bag, but this just seems like an incredibly crass move speaking of the funding of todd akin. >> absolutely. if you take this larger here, the republican party has a huge problem, and it's that they don't think that the war on women, which is an overused term, i will acknowledge, is real or was real. and i will tell you, if you ask moderate women, if you ask independent women, if you ask republican women, many of them will tell you it's real. it's not just about contraception, it's about access to affordable health care, and it's about their belief, as a party, not everyone, but quite a few people, including mitt romney and his team, that simply having a woman on your staff means you're advocating for women and you
in our friend, the editor of real clear markets. good evening, john. first of all, what do you make of this? bernanke comes out with this stuff and first the market loves it and then the market hates it. we're going to talk about stocks later but what do you make of bern can i have's policy? >> this would be funny if it weren't so sad. these are the droolings of an adolescent. only a child can believe that you can create economic growth and prosperity simply by buying bonds and creating dollars. how is that going to drive the software innovator in austin or in silicon valley to create the next best thing? it's ludicrous. it's not going to work. it's going to slow down economic growth. >> in 2008 the fed's balance sheet, just like a family or bank balance sheet, $800 billion because it's the fed. at the end of next year, based on what bernanke said today, that balance sheet is going to be $4 trillion. it is absolutely extraordinary with the zero interest rate and all the money they're creating. now john tamny, i know the federal can produce money and destroy the dollar, but the feder

living in a liberal hour? john kerry is now this country's majority opinion. well, something here has stirred, but what is it? what has shifted the country from two-thirds against same-sex marriage to more than 50% for it. compassion, common sense? idea fatigued? the idea to specify a single argument against it? or is it family, friends, coworkerincowork workers and public by so many people that they are gay. is this why so many have changed their mind in marriage equality? in in cases, a major breakthrough. our guest, clark cooper and joan wallace. let's take a look at something that george will said this weekend. and the question is has the opposition of gay marriage softened, even among conservatives? let's watch it. >> this decision by the supreme court came 31 days after an election day. never happened before. now, the question is, how will that influence the court? it could make them say it's not necessary for us to go here. on the other han, they could say it's now safe to look at this because there is something like an emerging consensus. quite literally, the opposition to gay
trying to get some leverage to go against john boehner? are there people who are really angry enough or convinced enough that they can't vote for this? >> i think what it reflects is populous pressure coming from the tea party movement. tea party movement is widely, i think, misunderstood by democrats as anti-tax or some other reason of the movement. it's an anti-government spending and government over-reach move m, which is very different from grover nor cyst project of holding the line on taxes. john boehner is a guy in 2010 who was asked what part of government would you cut, he's like, i don't know. he didn't have an answer. republicans have stopped having that answer traditionally. the tea party movement rose up to challenge that finally and put pressure on that. it's a real pressure, but they don't have leadership in the house right now that reflects that. they didn't get leadership that reflected that in the presidential race. that wasn't where mitt romney was coming from. there was a dissatisfaction there but they don't have a leader yet. i think what we will see is whatever

. at which time the stock price roughly doubled. in other huj fund news, john paulson said friday that his funds experienced mixed returns in november. we got wind of this. softer gold prices weighed on some portfolios. not much time for -- the predictions to be right. >> some will do well based on housing, right? >> yes. everybody said gold was going over 2,000. it didn't. the merger, arbitrage focus partners fund climbed 1.4% in november and is up 6.7% for the year. the firm's biggest portfolio, the credit opportunity fund was flat for the month. it is up 5.6% for the year. >> i like that. >> yeah b, i got weight watchers and twinkies. if you want to see the twinkies table, this td is it. this is the official drop dead date for those making an offer for the baker. there are nearly 200 interested parties, but sources close to the process are anticipating a few dozen real committed bids will emerge. kayla tauschis will join us in the next hour with a look at twinkies and the other hostess brands, the products buying attention for buyers. >> apparently the products that are most wanted, the
specifics, we do know the president and john boehner talked on the phone last night and that call, according to a republican familiar with it, was tense and lasted just 15 minutes. i want to bring in real clear politics reporter aaron mcpike and david hawkings, editor of the cq roll call daily briefing. good morning. so president obama sat down with barbara walters last night. here's what he said. >> most important thing we can do is make sure the middle class taxes do not go up on january 1st and i'm pretty confident that republicans would not hold middle class taxes hostage to try to protect tax cuts for high income individuals. >> so he's confident. is it almost a foregone conclusion, do you think, david, that this is going to be the first piece of the puzzle that falls into place? >> i'm pretty confident that that's going to have to be the first piece of the puzzle that falls into place. but i think it's going to take until the very last second for the pieces to fall. >> why? >> why. because -- that's a great question. because both sides, it's in both sides' best interests to make this l
. in the past, other deejays managed to prank call the queen herself and even pope john paul. a miami deejay once got through to fidel castro. during the 2008 campaign, sarah palin got called out by a canadian prankster impersonating the french president. >> one of my favorite activities is to hunt, too. >> very good, we can go hunt together. >> reporter: in that case, as in this one, is begs the question, was she just being polite or was the caller convincing? could you tell the difference? the queen rarely uses the first person singular. one tend not to, does one not? >> i think it's difficult sleeping in a strange bed as well. >> yes, of course. >> it's nothing like the palace, is it, charles? nope, nothing like the palace at all. david wright, abc new, los angeles. >> i can't believe how that happened. >> i am a little shocked too. they were, i don't know. it sounded more like the queen than when i saw the piece yesterday. see how they may have fallen for it. >> may have fallen for it. nobody asked for the woman to identify herself. i know she said kate's grandmother. but still -- >> tha

by john cornun of texas and pass there had on november 26th. hundreds of union members and their supporters are protesting michigan's decision yesterday to rush through right-to-work legislation. the state house and senate approved measures that will prohibit unions from forcing non-union members to pay additional fees. republicans claim that that will boost the economy and jobs. but democrats are calling it an attack on workers' rights. governor rick snyder has previously said that right-to-work is not on his agenda but he does plan on sign that next week. back on capitol hill steven spielberg is slated to attend "lincoln." poems president obama is hosting the event at the capitol visitor senator. after the screening, spielberg and louis along with 3 other actors will hold a q and a session with senators and their guests. more "bill press" is coming up after our break. see you then. i want the people who watch our show, to be able to come away armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have
increases for everyone and big, painful federal budget cuts, unless president obama and house speaker john boehner can strike a deal. we'll have the latest on the battle of wills in washington. >> the president is out this morning with a not-so-conciliatory note. we'll get the latest from david kerley coming up. >>> check this out. why all new cars may soon be spying on their drivers and making it tough for you to cover your tracks. >>> we're going to start, though, with what should have been a joyous week for the royal family. but news of kate's pregnancy was very quickly overshadowed by her hospitalization for morning sickness, a prank call that duped two of her nurses, and then, the suspected suicide of one of those nurses. this morning, the boss of the two australian deejays behind this prank is now speaking out. and abc's jeffrey kofman is in london on the story. jeffrey, good morning to you, sir. >> reporter: and good morning to you, dan. an outpouring of indignation, that is what we are seeing around the world as news of this story spreads. and nowhere is it stronger than in austral
what it is carrying, not even john zarrella, who knows everything, knows what's inside that shuttle. but he joins us now from miami. why so secret, john? >> reporter: hey, ted. you know, i'm not sure i want to know what's inside this one. yeah, it's called the x-37b, and this is the third orbital test flight of this unmanned vehicle. it flies up at the same altitude as a space shuttle, about 200 miles, circles the earth, and can be commanded to autonomously return back to earth. now, it has created a tremendous amount of speculation as to what it is doing up there, the last one that returned to earth earlier this year was up for 469 days, just orbiting. there's been all kinds of speculation about the fact that perhaps it is a satellite-killing machine, perhaps it is an on-demand reconnaissance vehicle, as some call it, in other words, a spy satellite. the air force says it's none of that. that basically it's been up there as a test bed, and they are testing everything from heat shields, thermal protection systems, avionics, all advanced seals, for instance. high high-temperature sea
to get a deal with the house speaker john boehner over taxes and spending cuts. our chief political analyst gloria borger is here to take a closer look at the agreements, the disagreements, i guess there's more disagreements than agreements. let's step back and see where these two sides stand, gloria. >> let's step back from the cliff here for a minute, wolf. and you'll see that on tax, which is of course the crux of this matter, there's a huge difference between congressional republicans who want to raise $800 billion over ten years from tax increases. and of course the white house that wants to, you know, basically double that. i mean, the white house says, we need to get more revenue from taxes. if you break apart these tax number, take a look, because of course we know, the big issue, the theological issue here, wolf, is raising rates. the white house says let's raise them back to bill clinton's days. and the republicans of course say, no way, let's not raise those rates. here's what's really interesting to me, though. both sides say in the future they want to do the same thing.
. a young man killed, execution style. here with the new images, abc's john schriffen. >> reporter: this is the chilling image just moments before police say a suspected hit man pulled a gun from his pocket and put a bullet into the back of the head of 31-year-old brandon lincoln woodard, a father and aspiring lawyer from los angeles. police are now looking for this man, who somehow managed to slip away, with more than a dozen witnesses nearby in manhattan's columbus circle. here's how the calculated murder went down. police say around 1:20 monday afternoon, the suspect arrived at the scene waiting for his victim. 30 minutes later, he gets out of the tan getaway car, talks to his getaway driver and scopes out the scene. watch as multiple people walk by, getting a glimpse of the killer before he pulls his hood up, then begins pacing up and down the block, even passing by his target. minutes later, as woodard walks down this busy street with surveillance cameras catching his every move, the suspect walking up from behind. police say that's when the victim looks up from his phone, ins
it over to other nations. >> chris lawrence, thank you. >>> john berman with other stories making news. >>> the united states officially recognizing syria's opposition coalition as the representative of the syrian people. it's just a show of support. it is does not mean america will arm rebel forces. president obama talked about why the decision was made right now. >> the syrian opposition coalition is now inclusive enough. reflective and representative enough of the syrian population, that we consider them the legitimate representative of the syrian people in the asass regime. >>> hugo chavez, recovering from six hours of surgery in cuba this morning. the fourth cancer-related operation for the venezuelan president since the summer of 2011. his vice president tells the people of venezuela the procedure on chavez was complex and completed correctly and successfully. >>> so michigan, the cradle of the organized labor movement is now a right to work state. last night, michigan governor rick snyder kept his word and signed the controversial legislation into law, despite thousands of prote
, there's no true guarantee it's going to pass congress. >> oh, i think -- the big stumbling block is john boehner getting enough republicans. i think nancy pelosi has proven she can pass things. she's proven to be a good soldier. boehner has a harder time coraling the tea party. he's taken steps to show who is boss. he punished four members withdrawaling their favorite assignments. he's got the leadership lined up with him. he looked like a very weak speaker ten days ago. he's looking stronger now. i think republicans understand that the deal they get after the first of the year is a worst deal than they get before the end of the year because the next congress is more favorable to democrats. i think he's in a better position to make the sale this time. >> one thing we have been watching is the two-step process. tom cole of oklahoma has taken a lot of heat from his own party suggesting to get the tax cuts out of the way for the tax cuts. here is what he's having to say about that. >> none of us want to raise the rates on anybody. but the reality is the rates on everybody go up at the end o
for the union movement to continue. >> ruth, let me ask you about the fiscal cliff because within the hour john boehner was on the floor and said his meeting was nice. >> cordial. >> where are the cuts? both sides saying that the other has not been specific enough about what they're willing to put on the table. the calendar now is the real enemy. they have to get some kind of outline together or else it's going to be a legislative agreement to create another commission and tregers down the road, and that is going to freak the markets. >> we'll see how freaked the markets get. you may have better insight into that than i do. also, it's not just the calendar is an enemy. the desire to have the other side take the leap first is the enemy, and also, i think keep your eye on the debt ceiling. the president's desire to wrap this in the republicans desire to kick that can down the road and have perhaps more leverage in later debt ceiling negotiations could end up also being something that makes it very difficult to reach closure here by the time we all want to go away for the holiday. >> you can say t

come next year. president obama and house speaker john boehner spoke about the stalemate by phone last night. mr. obama has cut his demand for new revenue from tax hikes but continues to insist on higher taxes for the wealthy. boehner's counter offer was almost what republicans have been offering all along, $800 billion in tax revenues, none of them generated by higher tax rates. that stalemate is causing irritation for the senate female members. starting in january, there will be 20 of them, a new record. and they told diane sawyer if they were in charge, well, a deal would already be done. >> what i find is with all due deference to our male colleagues that women's styles tend to be more collaborative. >> i think by nature, we are less confrontational and more collaborative. and having us in the room, and i think all of us, not only do we want to work in a bipartisan way, we do it. >> certainly a turning point now for the senate in the chamber next year. it will be the first-ever females from the states of massachusetts and nebraska, as well as the first asian-american woman and the

're also learning new details of the latest phone call between president obama and house speaker john boehner did not go well. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with today's long-range rocket launch that's managed to put a satellite in earth's orbit. here's why it is important to all of us. even though north korea is one of the poorest countries and many people are starving there, the korean peninsula is the most tense, most dangerous places on earth. there are roughly one million north korean troops on it is side of the militarize zone separating from south korea. as well as nearly 30,000 u.s. forces. not only are they within strikes distance of the launch site, a long-range rocket shows north korea is on its way to developing technology to launch a rocket at the united states's west coast and hawaii. officials tell cnn that the working assumption is that the north koreans got outside help from others, including iran. so today's launch is raising some huge concerns. let's go to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. i assume they are pretty surprised a
ransom was made but the taliban was asking for $100,000 for dr. joseph's release. general john allen felt that his life was in imminent danger and then called for the rescue mission as special operations team lured the taliban in, saying they would pay the ransom. the taliban came. instead, they were met by this team who killed at least six taliban insurgents. unfortunately, this u.s. navy s.e.a.l. also lost his life. his identity has not yet been released but he is being labeled a hero by the top brass in washington, including secretary of defense leon panetta and president barack obama who in a statement said he gave his life for his fellow americans and he and his teammates remind us once more of the selfless service that allows our nation to stay strong, safe and free. the american navy s.e.a.l. sacrifice has not been lost on dr. joseph's family who, in a statement released their condolences. >> atia abawi in kabul, thank you. >>> the deejays who have made that prank call to the hospital where the duchess of cambridge had been staying have just learned that their show has been cancele
why john boehner must not fold on tax rate increases. it's a shame that republicans are playing into mr. obama's hands negotiating in public prematuring giving up on the tack issue. this is why i think it's an easy case to make if you're on the right. we had an election. if you respect the election, you must assume they were paying attention when barack obama, the president, as you like to say appropriately, the president over and over in every speech said we've got to raise the tax rates on the top bracket. and everybody heard it, and everybody voted for him knew they were voting for that and that was the majority. that would help the conservatives say this time i'll go with the voter. >> and this shows if you live long enough, you will see anything happen and now we have rush limbaugh being the voice of moderation. >> on the dream team. >> within the republican party. the voice for pragmatic decision making in the party. i think people do realize that. they say it privately. each day more and more of them say it publicly. this is inevitably where we're going but the republican
for more tax revenue today. warren buffett, vanguard founder john bogle, and financier george soros were among the famous names to call for a tougher estate tax. their proposal would exempt couples with up to $4 million in assets from the estate tax. above that level, estates would pay a 45% tax rate, rising to 50% or more on very large estates. supporters say that would both bring in badly needed revenue and help protect our democracy. >> it works to reduce concentrations of economic and poticapoweacro generations, and those concentrations are antithetical to the basic premise, if you will, of the founding of our republic, which was that it was a land of opportunity. and i think that those concentrations also can play a significant role, concentrations of economic and political power across generations, in distorting the functioning of our democratic political system. >> reporter: but raising the estate tax is unpopular even among many democrats who worry it will hit farmers and small businesses. and tax analysts say the estate tax is just too complicated to tackle in thfiscal cliff neg
